Re: Feet pain from standing up at work all day.
Ecotone, welcome to the boards! What type of shoes are you wearing? This is the most important thing. I'm a hairdresser, and I know all about feet pain. I have vericose veins and my left ankle is constantly swollen. I buy my shoes 1/2 size larger, this way my feet have room to swell by the end of day, and my shoes will not be so tight. Your shoes need to have lots of support on the bottom. Therapeutic support hose also help. Drinks lots of water to help with fluid retention, and put your feet up every chance you get. Any type of anti-inflammatory, such as ibuprofen, may help with the pain. Doctors suggest a good walking shoe, but these tend to make my calfs hurt, so for me it was just a matter of trying different shoes until I found what works for me. Hope these suggestions help you some.
